Abstract:

The items in the Stroop color-word test are color names printed in an incongruous color e.g., the word red in the color blue. Twenty-four Submarine School volunteers viewed a set of 36 Stroop items presented serially at speeds of either 1 or 2 sec. duration. Interference in color naming was examined over six repeated presentations of the list. The results indicated that interference effects were significantly greater p .001 under the 1 sec. condition. The data are consistent with a competing response interpretation.
